Australian model breaks down during what she says is her final You Tube video, giving an explosive expose of the social media “business”, and some powerful life lessons she’s learned that are well worth listening to


Essena O’ Neil is an Australian girl who was made ‘famous’ on social media for her sexy Instagram pictures. She’s just made a moving, raw video that will probably get shared more than any of her other vlogs combined, telling her followers that she’s giving up social media for good. And whether you care who she is or not, her passionate and often emotional rant about what is really important in life has a really hard-hitting message for all of us.

“This is for my twelve year-old self,” O’Neill says, referring to the age she was when she began her professional career as a vlogger and serial Facebook poster. Back then, she says, she had no self esteem and obsessively stalked models online, dreaming of being as “valued” as she perceived them to be. Gazing too long at Billabong models made her hate her own body. O’Neill, now 18, told herself she would be “of more value if I had more views on YouTube.”

“I let myself be defined by numbers,” she says, breaking up at times and telling viewers over and over to go talk to real people, interact, turn off the phone, stop defining who you are by your popularity.

“If you google the symptoms of depression and anxiety I had all that times a billion,” O’Neill says, mentioning a rich, famous ex-boyfriend who was depressed as hell (like all the wealthy people she met, coincidentally).

“I had everything I ever wanted. Now I’m here and I see how contrived, fake and forced consistently proving to the world ‘how amazing my life/body/self is,” she says. “I spent everyday looking at a screen, viewing and comparing myself to others. It’s easier to look at shiny and pretty things that appear happy than stopping and just getting real with yourself. Social media only became great for me because of the amount of effort I put in trying to portray this ‘perfect’ person. Posting on Instagram consumed me. I can’t you how beautiful life is without a phone, without social media, without comparing, or likes or followers. We are not followers, we are beings of individuality and love.”

O’Neill’s testimony also covers how companies and sponsors of social media “stars” are cajoled and bullied as much as any celebrity in the music industry. People like her are actually told what to post and at what time, she reveals. It’s a big business, workers are exploited, and all that matters is the click-bait. ‘Fame’ brought O’Neill nothing but misery and emotional trauma, judging by this video.

O’Neill’s message to screen-addicts far and wide is one of those must-watch videos. She makes us think about what really matters: Is it love, friendship, leisure time and real-life connections, or how many facebook likes your holiday snaps are getting?

She has created a website where she will start blogging about the dark side of the social media “business,” and she’s re-captioned all her Instagram posts (you HAVE to check them out) with brutal honesty since her recent (spiritual awakening?). Instagram is currently going crazy over it- she’s definitely started a big movement. Here’s one comment:

“I’ve been crying for about 10 minutes at how accurate and devastating the social construct of our generation is. @essenaoneil  I can not tell you how inspired I am- I’m a 15 year old girl, like many other teenage girls I struggle with self acceptance and ‘norms’ to a somewhat high degree. My mum showed me your page and it’s funny because I used to follow you when I was a little younger, saying to myself, wow she is my goals, and ofcourse there is nothing wrong with that but eventually I did end up unfollowing you since the perfection in every picture was dimming my own self esteem, as were all the other perfect Instagram famous girls. I can not describe in words how happy I am that you’ve started this movement, I literally can’t put it to words- it’s the most important thing in our generation right now. Teens are killing themselfs [sic], starving themselfs [sic], editing their pictures to no end, being someone their [sic] not, trying so hard to be accepted, struggling with the one concept we all feel forced to conform to: perfection. We need kindness, realness, acceptance, less judgement, social hierarchy to not mean a thing anymore! You are so so inspirational, this is exactly what is going to chance the world for the better, it’s a true chance to empower with REALNESS!”

Wow. Let us know what you think of this brave girl’s jaw-dropping rant in the comment section below, and share this if you agree that she’s a total hero!

Have you heard of this digital currency that’s a total scam?

Dollar-digital-currency

It was back in May 2010 that the very first ‘real world’ Bitcoin transaction was conducted: 10,000 bitcoins traded for two Papa John’s pizzas.

Today that transaction would be worth nearly $4 million, probably making those the most expensive pizzas in the history of the world.

But back then it was considered revolutionary to trade a ‘digital’ currency, something that few people really understood at the time, for a real product.

People are still skeptical of digital currency. But the concept itself is not so esoteric.

As Jim Rickards reminded me some time ago, MOST currencies are digital, even the US dollar.

The Federal Reserve’s estimate of US dollar money supply is $12.1 trillion; yet only about 10% of that is physical cash in circulation.

The rest—more than $10 trillion—is simply a series of entries in banks’ core system databases.

In other words, the money in your savings account isn’t piled up inside your bank’s vault. Far from it.

Your savings doesn’t really exist. It’s all just digits in an electronic account ledger.

And yet we transact with these digital currency units all the time.

Whenever you use a credit card or send a bank transfer, you’re using the digital form of your currency.

This concept actually dates back to the Middle Ages when Italian bankers realized that they could conduct their transactions without physical money.

Rather than risk transporting gold coins across the countryside, medieval bankers merely annotated their ledgers with debit and credit entries.

They didn’t have the computers, but it was the same concept– they kept track of transactions and balances on account ledgers, instead of with physical money.

In the late 1960s, the IMF took this idea to the next level when they created their own digital currency for the exclusive use of governments and central banks.

They’re called Special Drawing Rights (SDR, or XDR).

And even though the IMF’s balance sheet totals nearly 300 billion SDR (around $211 billion USD), not a single SDR exists in physical form.

100% of the SDR money supply is digital. Just like Bitcoin, it exists in computer databases, making it the digital equivalent of a 500-year old accounting system.

There is one key difference, though.

No one controls Bitcoin. But dollars, euros, SDR, etc., are controlled by central banks.

Federal Reserve, Banque du Canada, Bank of Japan, etc. all decide how much of their currencies to create.

The SDR in particular is a total scam; the entire reason it was created was because the system didn’t have enough real savings.

So they ‘solved’ the problem by creating a new digital currency that allowed them to easily conjure more money out of thin air.

But the even bigger risk is the commercial banks, which control your account balances. They keep all the records and ledgers, they hold all the keys.

This means that the ‘money’ in your savings account isn’t really yours. You don’t actually have any savings.

What you really have is a claim on your bank’s savings. Your account is just an entry in the liability column of their digital ledger.

When you make a deposit, you’re trading your money for a banker’s promise to repay you.

And there are countless regulations giving them the authority to break that promise.

(If you want to test this premise, try withdrawing $25,000 just to see how your bank reacts.)

That’s the system that controls your wealth today. It’s almost entirely digital. And it’s run by unelected bureaucrats whose interests are not aligned with your own.

This is not a free system. And any rational person should consider parking at least a rainy day fund outside of this system.

Bitcoin is certainly one option.

No one controls it, which is a novel concept in an era when governments and central banks control everything from the value of your savings to what you can/cannot put in your own body.

But if Bitcoin isn’t your flavor just yet, consider other options.

Gold and silver still have incredible merit since they cannot be conjured out of thin air by central banks.

And even holding physical cash is a much better alternative than keeping everything inside a highly centralized banking system.
